2010 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 4dr Minivan (3.3L 6cyl 4A)
From the quiet and surprisingly capable 3.3 V6 to a comfortable ride, great brakes and super-van turning radius the Caravan does its job very well. The 3.3 doesn't rev quickly but moves the van well stoplight to stoplight which is surprising for such a heavy vehicle. This is due to plenty of low end torque from the 3.3 The stow & go rear seats are neat and fairly easy to fold down and raise up. While in the up position you have two cavernous floor storage compartments for suitcases, duffel bags, coolers etc. This is a really good and useful feature. The second row stowable seats also adjust fore/aft for taller passengers. Front seat comfort and steering/pedal placement is very good.
- Flex fuel engine (E85 fuel costs less) - Sexy black metallic paint and black/light shale interior - Good base engine (3.3L V6) with decent low end torque and acceleration - Smooth ride - Quiet, comfortable cabin/seats for trips - Dual over/under glove boxes - Surprisingly good hwy MPG
Muffler seems louder than normal until the muffler heats up, work on that. Take the manumatic feature out of the 4 speed automatic (not enough control over the transmission anyway) and just offer the 5 speed version across the line up. Change the remote start so you don't have to lock the car first
